Ivette Löcker visits her family in Lungau. The farmhouse there is meant to be passed down to the children. Similar to the old building being plagued with mold, the family construct also proves to be increasingly porous. A cinematic family constellation, which also becomes a narrative about life in the countryside – a tense portrait of a family where a lot remains unsaid, some things said too often, and the sudden switch from distance to closeness makes emotions boil over.
